CANSA Active and ABSA Cape Epic

Who knew that by riding the Absa Cape Epic, you could be having #FeelGoodFun as well as assisting CANSA with vital funds to fight cancer? Our mission is to spread awareness about the dangers and risks surrounding cancer and bringing screening services to those that need it most.  

CANSA is so excited to be an official partner for this event as it provides a super platform for CANSA to promote the CANSA Active programme.  CANSA believes in being active and healthy including staying safe in the sun.  

We give back to local communities, by providing information, care and support to cancer Survivors (patients), caregivers and loved ones, who might not have been in a position to receive support otherwise.  The funds raised through go towards CANSA’s service delivery, specifically our care and support programmes which include counselling, support groups, medical equipment hire, wigs, prostheses, stoma products, and accommodation if patients are living far from treatment centres at our CANSA Care Homes.

CANSA believes that a balanced lifestyle is key to lowering your cancer risk and raises awareness on how to reduce cancer risk through health campaigns and educates about the importance of knowing the symptoms of cancer, as well as going for regular screening and health checks
